Police have arrested a 24-year-old man after he punched a 16-year-old Chassidish Bochur outside the Skver-Toldos Yeshiva in Outremont, but police called the case a “simple assault” and released the perp.

The man was ordered to appear in municipal court July 9 at 9 a.m. to answer to the assault charge, Montreal police Constable Robert Mansueto said.

Skver-Toldos’s is the same school that was firebombed on Sept. 2, as was reported here on Yeshivaworld, but nothing suggests that this incident was anything more than a common altercation, police said. “There is no evidence this is a hate crime,” Mansueto said. The 24-year-old told police he thought the teen was somebody else, Mansueto said. (The Gazette)


  1. I think the chief of police needs to be arrested on hate crimes charges. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist- or a good police chief- to comprehend the issue at hand. How many more incidents do we need to make things clear to this fool? What- the frenchie thought it was his friend [ with the lange peiyos ] he was hitting? This chief should be giving parking tickets, if even that.

  2. Actually, the kid had been an extra in one of the Lipa Schmeltzer HASC videos, and he thought he was giving Lipa a potch for another video.

    And if you believe that, you’d also believe it was not a hate crime.

  3. matzalocaol,

    I didn’t misunderstand anything.If it is as you say, why does it take away the suspicion of a hate crime?! If you’ll tell me he had a reason, then why is i necessary to mention that he thought it was something else. Use your keppel.

  4. ‘You misunderstood, he thought it was a different Jew.’

    Granted! so he HATED anothere Jew! Besides, has PUNCHING become permissable? A mature man of 24 shouldnt be ASSAULTING teenager. If he had some sort of trouble with him, he should done things in a civilized way and have him reported!


    For heaven’s sakes!
